A very poor propaganda indeed and not so well fabricated
As an American living in Turkey for over 30 years I positively think that Mr Terril's story is a fake one. I don't even think that "Thanes Terrill" is his real name. Just by looking at the dates of travel (1982), writing the story (1996) and publishing it in(2005). He seems to be political, extremely phobic and suffering some serious psychological problems. Turkey with it's beautiful people and delicios cousine is a tourist heaven for young and old alike, and camels are very rare. The movie Midnight Express was a propaganda also. Turks love their neighbors Greeks, Armenians, Arabs and Jews. Don't waste your time reading Mr. Thrill. Come to Turkey for the best vacation of your life, but start from İstanbul.
